"A tornado southeast of Protection at about 1:30 p.m. on March 21, 2005. I took this photo from in front of my auto parts store. It did not do any damage in town. It was about 2 miles southeast of town on Kiowa creek. It did touch down for just a little ways." -- Orlin Loucks.

The city of Greensburg, Kansas, which was largely destroyed a year ago by a massive twister, reported minor damage when a tornado hopped from the western edge to the eastern edge of town Friday.
